Community Engagement

We value contributions from the community and regularly invite feedback on policies, strategies and projects.

The Council has endorsed a Communications and Engagement Policy, Framework and Strategy to make sure we are applying best practice principles, values and processes when communicating and engaging with the Kingborough community.

The Kingborough Community Consultative Forum meets every three months, where representatives from community organisations across Kingborough meet with Council Officers to discuss ideas and provide feedback on a range of projects.

We value the opportunity to gather information about what you want and to make collaborative, consultative decisions. Council now has an online community engagement platform, where all of Council’s online forums, polls and surveys will be published. Visit the Our Say page via the link below.

Current Engagement Opportunities

Silverwater Park Future

Council would like to know what you like about Silverwater Park in Woodbridge, and what changes, if any, you would like to see.

This consultation will help Council to consider how we plan, design and take care of the park in the future.

Thank you for taking time to participate. We will be presenting the information to Council in April and we will let you know the result.

Why would you want an aquatic centre in Kingston?

Kingborough Council has been given a grant from the Tasmanian Government to do a feasibility study for an aquatic centre or swimming pool in Kingborough. The idea is to locate it within the Kingborough Sports Precinct.

The swimming pool idea has been floating about for a number of years and now we need to make sure we understand why you want a pool and what the community needs are.

We need to know this information so we can assess viable and responsible options of how to develop and manage this sort of facility in the future.
